Product Description

Cytogard 20mg (Trimetazidine)

Uses

Trimetazidine is used for symptomatic treatment of stable angina (chest pain) as an additional therapy to other frontline medicines.

How it works

Trimetazidine belongs to metabolic modulators class of medicines also known as pFOX inhibitors (partial fatty-acid-oxidation inhibitor). In myocardium (muscles of the heart), trimetazidine partially inhibit the metabolic process (?-oxidation) of fatty acid that requires more oxygen consumption) by blocking a specific enzyme (long-chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase) and thereby triggering glucose oxidation that requires less oxygen consumption. Angina is caused due to decreased oxygen supply to the cells of the heart as a result of reduced blood flow. Trimetazidine, thus triggers processes that increase cellular energy (potentiation of glucose oxidation), thereby acts by preserving the myocardial high-energy and makes oxygen available for the cells of the heart.

Q. How does trimetazidine work?
Trimetazidine belongs to metabolic modulators class of medicines also known as pFOX inhibitors (partial fatty-acid-oxidation inhibitor). In myocardium (muscles of the heart), trimetazidine partially inhibit the metabolic process (?-oxidation) of fatty acid that requires more oxygen consumption) by blocking a specific enzyme (long-chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase) and thereby triggering glucose oxidation that requires less oxygen consumption.
